Overview of Yorepek Extra Large Backpack
Yorepek is a name I recently came across so to know more about them before looking further into their products, I headed straight to their official site. They have not been around for a long time, in fact, to be more precise, they started manufacturing backpacks in the year 2016.
Though the company has not been around for a long time, I was really impressed with the praises heaped upon their backpacks. If you take a look at the reviews received by the Yorepek’s Extra Large Backpack, you would notice that there are over 1000+ reviews on just this particular pack.
I did further research and some of their backpacks very similar to this had over 400+ reviews. These are pretty impressive numbers for a brand that has not been around for a long time.
One thing I noticed they do is that they look at what their competition does and then take it a step further. Like I said earlier on, smart backpacks have a tendency to be small in size. Yorepek must have noticed this and made it a point to design a backpack with similar features to other smart backpacks but with a little more space.
Extremely Large Spaced Smart Backpack
Taking a look at the picture you would understand what I mean by extremely large backpack. For a smart backpack, I was really impressed with the size of the yorepek extra large backpack. In my review of Oscaurt Anti-Theft Travel Backpack, you would notice that I complained about the size of the backpack as one of its drawbacks.
Well, not for yorepek’s extra large backpack. The backpack is large enough to carry everything I make use of on a regular basis and I am pretty sure it should be big enough to carry yours. I do not own a 17 inches laptop(although I plan to very soon) so I would not be able to say for sure if it can house a 17 inches laptop but based on the specifications of the backpack and the comments of previous buyers, I am confident it would be able to take 17 inches and below sized laptops.
It comes with three large main compartments that are equipped with rugged oversized metal zippers.
Protect Your Laptop From Getting Damaged
Due to how expensive my laptop is, I always like making use of a backpack that has a padded sleeve that can be used to keep my laptop safe. This is very important to prevent your laptop from getting damaged by items inside your backpack.
Yorepek’s Extra Large Backpack comes with a padded sleeve for 13 to 17inches Laptops/MacBooks. The compartment has an adjustable velcro strap so you can be able to fit different laptop sizes and be able to gain easy access to them.
Unbelievable Number Of Pockets
Hardly do you find backpacks that have 20+ pockets. Are you one of those like myself that sometimes need a lot of pockets in a backpack? Then yorepek’s extra large backpack is just for you. With its 20+ pockets, you can be able to place your smaller items into different pockets such as your iPad, pens, keys, wallets, books, passports, clothes, cell phones and similarly sized items without having the need to cram them all into a few numbers of pockets making your backpack to be disorganized.
A Backpack Approved By TSA
The hassle in traveling is an experience a lot of us have coupled with going through checkpoints in the airport. Offloading my backpack and then repacking my items is definitely one of my unfavorite parts of traveling. Luckily, most airports now approve smart backpacks which means you don’t have to offload or completely offload your items when passing checkpoints.
This is what is referred to as TSA friendly or TSA approved. Yorepek’s extra large backpack is a TSA friendly backpack. When making use of this backpack, all you have to do is to inform them at the checkpoint stand that your backpack is TSA friendly and then what you need to do next is to open it flat up to 180 degrees, lay it flat so it can easily pass through the scanners.
You won’t have to remove your digital gears like your laptop, phones, tablets or media players. Pretty sweet, right?
Charge Your Phone With Ease
This has become a common feature in smart backpacks although, not all smart backpacks have this feature. Yorepek’s extra large backpack is one of those smart packs that come with a USB charging port with a built-in charging cable so you can charge your phone on the go.
Your smartphone, kindle and other electronic devices would be able to get charged while on the go. The downside to this feature is that you would have to make use of your own power bank that can be connected inside the backpack. This means that the backpack does not come with a built-in power bank. You would need to make use of yours.
A Healthy Way To Listen To Music
I love music and I cannot do without it so when I found out that this backpack had a hole for headphones, made me really excited because putting devices in our pockets is not good for the body especially for guys and holding the device with our hands just defeats one of the purposes of having a backpack in the first place which is supposed to help us free up our hands.
The Yorepek’s extra large backpack comes with a headphone jack that makes you to conveniently listen to your favorite music hands-free while on the go with your device placed securely inside the backpack.
As you know, most things that have an advantage also have a disadvantage and the disadvantage of the headphone jack is restricted access to your device to change your music unless if playing a particular playlist then, there would be no need in removing the device from the bag.
An Important Factor Of A Backpack
Durability and quality of materials of a backpack is a factor that should never be overlooked because it can determine just how long your backpack would last. The Yorepek’s extra large backpack was made with polyester fabric with high-density nylon lining.
This is a pretty good material and should be able to hold up for a long time although I came across a user that complained about the quality of the material. But based on my findings on the quality of the material used, the compliments from users of the Yorepek extra large backpack outweighed the complaints of its users plus based on material quality ratings, it received a whopping 4.8 stars out of 5.
Comfort, Second To None
One of the disadvantages in making use of some backpacks is your back been sweaty because it overheats when the back of a backpack is pressed against your back for a long time especially in sunny weathers. Luckily, Yorepek’s extra large backpack was designed with a mesh back panel which prevents or drastically reduces overheating thereby allowing for better airflow.
According to its specifications, it’s shoulder straps were designed with heavily padded honeycomb breathable material which is easily adjustable. They were designed to be wide. Also, due to the designing of the backpack, it should be comfortable to wear because it’s design ensures dispersion of gravity of the backpack.
The problem I have when it comes to the comfort of the Yorepek’s extra large backpack is the exclusion of chest straps. Addition of a chest strap is supposed to help remove some load of the backpack from the shoulders thereby making it more comfortable. I really don’t know why this wasn’t included during the designing of the Yorepek’s extra large backpack.
The handle of the backpack was designed with a rugged steel cable. This was done for a more secure hold when picking up or moving the backpack and I think it is a good idea.
The straps of the Yorepek’s extra large backpack comes with a stylish sunglass band that can be used to hang your sunglasses, clip work ID or similar items that need quick, easy, and convenient access. Some backpacks I have come across don’t have this basic feature but it can make a difference when a buyer is to purchase a backpack.
More Than A Fair Pricing
For a backpack of this magnitude, I think the price is fair. Taking a closer look, it does seem to come with different colors with two set prices which are $55.99 and $69.99. I don’t see any important detail to warrant the $14 difference in their pricing. The only noticeable difference I can see is in their color.
My Final Take
Yorepek’s extra large backpack is one of the largest smart backpacks I have come across. It has a nice structure and its features are pretty amazing. There are definitely features I would have loved to see like a built-in power bank, chest strap, better anti-theft features, and few others. But I think it is still an amazing backpack and well worth the price.
